humming bird


quick post before I leave for the office: more flour-resist dye results, a humming bird (from a stencil) very clear on the left just a hint of wing tip of the right; I pasted two humming birds, rolled up the fabric around a copper pipe, with various leaves folded in, bound the bundle with cotton string; it was in the Saturday dye pot; why one took and the other didn't.....more research is needed

the paste resist worked beautifully!! I was given a crazy quilt last week, and every stitched bird on it makes me think of your work.
